Melamine plates, dishes and serveware are practical options for alfresco dining, whether you are entertaining at home or packing a picnic. Chic homeware store Oriana B in Fairview, Dublin 3 has just launched a new range of durable melamine (and ceramic) dinnerware perfect for outdoor dining this season. Made in Italy from a decades-old family business, the colourful tableware is based on traditional hand-painted designs that bring a bit of the Mediterranean to your garden.

“Melamine is a natural compound that is modelled into tableware,” creative director Alannah Monks tells us. “It is durable, shatterproof and dishwasher proof which makes it perfect for outdoor use.” The product is so good that if you’re entertaining, your guests won’t even notice that the dinnerware isn’t actually ceramic until they pick the pieces up.
